There seems to be no online account of N26 TC failure, is it fair to assume N26 is immune to TC issues?

There are now two foremen who told me that stretched TC will trigger CEL, since the crankshaft timing will be off.

If CEL does get triggered by TC issues, then N26 owners will be covered by BMWNA for 15-yr/150k!!!

So the N26 owner's game plan is just to keep driving hard until CEL is lit, and then just bring it to dealer to fix.
